I was born in 1980 I've never met my dad and was told that he died back in 1981 and he never told his siblings that he had a child at all but then he died before he was able to tell them, i was brought by my mum and i didn't know that i had a different father than my bro, i was then told when i was old enough that i had a father and was given very brief details, and i have been everywhere and almost exhausted the list trying to find him so i came on here (genes reunited) and just searched for anyone with his surname then sent all of them a message then a lovely lady sent me a message after a while giving me a list of people that is on record with his name and told me the most likely possibility of one particular person who was his sister so i sent a letter to her with a reply saying that the details that i had put in my letter matched her brother perfectly so thanks to genes reunited for making my family and my life complete. Highly recommended a********************************************
